Words by Mr Tom M Ford
"Us & Ourselves"
Since forming in 2007, the five-piece Morning Parade has produced consistent anthemic rock hits, capturing the imagination of a troop of fans, including Vogue and MTV. Currently enjoying a fizz of anticipation for their debut album Morning Parade (out at the end of the month), Mr Sparrow reveals just some of his all-time favourite tunes.
"You Think I Ain't Worth a Dollar But I Feel Like a Millionaire"
QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE
"This always gets me fired up. If I had to save the world from a zombie invasion, I would choose this for my soundtrack."
"The Art Teacher"
"This was the first song I ever heard by Rufus and I was hooked. His way with words and metre is like no other. I love how he pulls you around with his twists and turns using melody, metre, chord progressions and clever word play."
"An all-time classic, I don't think there is much I could say that hasn't already been said. I always come back to it because it's a genius piece of songwriting."
"I am a huge fan of Radiohead, and every record holds something special for me. "Let Down" is one that I always come back to. The melody, the sentiment behind the song, the production and Thom's delivery on this recording are all in perfect sync."
